7-year old Hafza Hailey and mother Taheerah Ahmad

They say the mother, Taheerah Ahmad, is suspected of stabbing her daughter multiple times before leaving with the 7-year-old.

Tulsa police said Taheerah Ahmad tied up her three daughters - ages 7, 9, and 1 - sometime between 6:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Monday night.

Tulsa Police are looking for Hafza Hailey, who went missing from the 500 block of Mohawk Boulevard at around 8 p.m.

The 11-year-old was in critical condition when she was taken by ambulance to a local hospital, police said.

The 11-year-old was stabbed so many times that police could not count the number of stab wounds, MacKenzie said.


Authorities say Ahmad stabbed her 11-year-old daughter and then set her home on fire.

The 9-year-old child told police the girls' mother had duct taped their hands and stuffed their mouths with socks before stabbing her sister.

Officer MacKenzie said the two younger children had managed to escape and run to a relative's house for help, but that Ahmad had ultimately managed to abduct her youngest child.

However, police believe she could also be driving a navy blue Ford sedan, but there is no year or tag information for the vehicle. Officials described Hafsa as having puffy hair in a ponytail, wearing an ankle-length peach dress, and painted gold bracelets.

According to tweets from Tulsa police, the department believes Ahmad took Hafza in a black 2005 Lexus RX300 SUV crossover, which they say might have paper plates.
